Keynote - Thriving in this Time of Exponential Change

We are witnessing historical amounts of technological change and cultural disruption which are causing people to shift their behaviors in an astonishingly short period of time. The meeting and event industry is certainly not impervious to this phenomenon and it can be seen in emerging innovations and eroding traditional approaches.

We must: Evolve or become obsolete! Learn how to use this momentum to our advantage!

Keynote Takeaways:

  • Learn why we are experiencing historic technological disruption and unprecedented shifting consumer behaviors.
  • Discover the three most important technological shifts that will impact us all over the next three years.
  • See how meeting and event professionals can prepare and thrive in these times of extraordinary change.

John Rich, VP, Future Experiences

Never before has the combination of new technology and shifting consumer behavior unfolded at today’s current scale and speed. Entire industries worth billions of dollars are now created or upended not in decades, but in a matter of years or even months.

To thrive in this landscape of exponential change, companies must know how to take advantage of new opportunities and mitigate the threats that emerge. To achieve this, the Future Experiences(FutureX)group and lab identify the most powerful technology, trends and ideas to deliver innovation strategies and prototypes to future-enable Moxie's clients.

John has worked in the advertising and digital marketing industry for more than 30 years. With experience in creative leadership, digital development, analytics, brand strategy and technology prototyping, he's touched virtually every brand category from CPG to auto. His clients range from Delta Air Lines to Verizon (and he’s hoping for a Z client soon).

  Jerry Hudson - VP, Future Experiences at Moxie

As a technology and cultural forecaster, strategist and transhumanist, Jerry Hudson specializes in exploring and incubating disruptive ideas and emerging technologies that advance the human experience. At Moxie, he future-enables brands by teaching clients how to take advantage of the opportunities created by these massive technological and societal shifts.

Jerry is a passionate evangelist for virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) and has led several projects using these immersive technologies. He led a keynote panel on Virtual Reality at the inaugural Cannes Festival of Innovation last year, and has presented numerous times on VR and AR.
